New ‘Flatliners’ Is Actually A Sequel


They’re making a new ‘Flatliners’ movie apparently.  And while most may have thought this would be yet another reboot, apparently that’s not the case.  We’re supposedly looking at a sequel here.  Keifer Sutherland will return and during an interview with Metro UK, the actor talked about the character he plays and explained that it’s the same character he played in the original film:

“I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I’m the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I’ve done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film. I loved making the first film and when I was asked if I would be interested in taking part in this, it didn’t take more than a minute to say yes.”

It looks like the execs and corporate bean counters at Hollywood are finally starting to see the term ‘reboot’ as a dirty word…
